Who’s bringing what, when and where can be confusing. Not anymore thanks to some wonderful folks who’ve had the blessing of receiving multiple meals from others. They’ve put their blessings into action by creating awesome calendars to help others, now that’s what I’m talking about.
I want to share Take Them A Meal, an online calendar which conveniently share what you’re taking to the needy with others. Here’s the perks of this virtual calendar:
- The address with a map (no asking around anymore)
- There’s a schedule for others to see (no repeat meals)
- Allergies/likes/dislikes are clearly listed (this can be so helpful w/o hurting anyone’s feelings)
- Drop off times
- You can invite friends via email
A sample meal plan can be found here
Meal Baby is another virtual calendar I love for scheduling meals for new moms or others. The options are the same as Take Them a Meal with one exception. You can send them a restaurant or grocery store gift card if you prefer! They have a list of participants here.
Both calendars are easy to enter your data and self-explanatory. The next time you hear of a friend, neighbor, co-worker or relative in need, why not start a organize a list of meals for him/her.
My other favorite ministry meals (all freezer friendly):
Black Bean and Corn Casserole

Have you ever organized a list of meals for others at church, work or neighborhood? Why not make it fun, convenient and organized for others to sign up by creating one of these virtual giving calendars.
Happy Meal Giving to Others!
